YOSHIKI appeared in first Hello Kitty convention "Hello Kitty Con 2014" held in Los Angeles on 2014/10/29 and played the official theme song for Hello Kitty he created himself.
The offer for the theme song was made directly to YOSHIKI by Hello Kitty's designer Yamaguchi Yuuko in 2007 after Hello Kitty and YOSHIKI's collaboration character "Yoshikitty" was released.
About 2,000 celebrities invited by Sanrio attended "Hello Kitty Con 2014", and on the day YOSHIKI performed "Forever Love"'s piano version on a special stage with a quartet. After that he performed Hello Kitty's theme song "HELLO HELLO" (temporary title) composed by himself as an EDM dance version and knocked the celebrities out with his performance.
YOSHIKI himself comments the theme song as following.
"I'm very glad to have got the chance to compose the theme song. I would like to convey love so that the world can get peace through Hello Kitty and this theme song. Also when I get children I want to play this to them."
The theme song that was played this time was an EDM/dance version in English, but they are planning to do versions in languages of each country in other genres too, such as classical, pop, rock etc.
